NEW VIDEO: MDP Holds Senator Daines Accountable for Misleading Health Care Ad 
Helena, MT – Over the weekend, Steve Daines released an ad with a slew of misleading claims attempting to rewrite his record of sabotaging Montanans’ health care. This continues Dishonest Daines’ habit of saying one thing in Montana, while doing the opposite in Washington DC.

Dishonest Ad: “Steve Daines will protect Montanans with pre-existing conditions and fight to lower prescription drug prices.” 

FACT CHECK: Daines has voted repeatedly to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and to expand “junk” insurance plans which are not required to cover pre-existing conditions. Daines has voted against measures to lower Rx drug prices, and has opposed giving Medicare the power to negotiate lower drug prices.

Dishonest Ad: “Bullock will help Biden and Pelosi pass government-controlled health care.” 

FACT CHECK: Governor Bullock opposes Medicare for All because it would eliminate private insurance and raise taxes. Instead, he supports a public option which experts argue is the best way to improve health care affordability and continue private insurance.

Dishonest Ad: “Their liberal plan would force rural hospitals to close.” 

FACT CHECK: Under Governor Bullock’s leadership, he worked to bring Democrats and Republicans together to expand Medicaid, which has served as a lifeline to rural hospitals. Daines has repeatedly voted to gut Medicaid expansion  and supports  the lawsuit that seeks to dismantle the health care law , which could decimate Medicaid expansion, if Republicans are successful.
